Riding around town.

Check Spelling

Riding around town tonight for about 90 minutes, streets and bike trails. Seemed I didn't have the gas to push it hard, so I just kept a steady pace and enjoyed the sights. Made this video of the bike trails that weave around the river, and you end up on an island on the Mississippi river. I haven't found a helmet cam yet that suits my needs, so I taped my regular camera on the handle bars. Weather person is talking lots of rain this weekend . I hope I can put some serious country miles in. I don't mind a drizzling and bicycling, but I can do with out the violent storms and bicycling. I enjoy watching the big storms from my front porch.

TI (TransIowa) is this weekend. Somewhere around 340 miles all on gravel and dirt around the clock, those guys are manimals. The race is legendary. I enjoy reading the biker's blog regarding their trials and tribulations in this race.

My dog is highly ticked off at me for my blog posting of her yesterday. She said it makes her look fat. I said, "camera's don't lie"

Well thanks for visiting.

A buddy of mine is doing TransIowa.
Here are the links he gave me.

His name is John Gorrilla. Honest

Tom now I want that name.:-) Yes, I read those blogs, along with many of the riders. I know some of the guys also, it is an incredible endurance feat.

Glad you got out late today for a ride. Yes, I heard the forecast too and it sounds pretty wet and cool....darn.

Oh heck, you and HL's will be out in that wet stuff for sure.
